scorpion-droidThe folks over at AndroidSpin got an anonymous tip – which we should always be cautious about – regarding an upcoming device called the HTC Scorpion. If the rumor is true, it’ll have a 1.5GHz processor, run Android 2.2 (Froyo) and perhaps have WiMax connectivity which would mean its Sprint bound. Here are the lines of a build file that this rumor stems from:
